The Nashville actress flashes her ring

Hayden Panettiere has confirmed that she’s engaged to Wladimir Klitschko.

The Nashville star was first spotted wearing a huge diamond ring last month and was questioned about the sparkler during an appearance on US TV show Live With Kelly And Michael.

Even though Hayden entered the studio with a huge boa constrictor around her neck, all eyes were on her dazzling rock.

Host Kelly said: I’m sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there’s a very large diamond ring on your ring finger.

I’m not sure if you want to announce anything… Does that signify anything, is that a promise ring or something?’

It might be… I mean, I think it speaks for itself,’ Hayden, 24, replied.

When asked if she was engaged the actress confirmed: I am.’

Hayden started dating Ukrainian boxer Wladimir, 37, in 2009 and they split in 2011 but rekindled the relationship earlier this year.
